“African Connection” was featured in the May 2018 issue of Hilton Head Monthly. The article talks about Joni Vanderslice’s Valentine Project in Tanzania.
ISLAND DESIGNER JONI VANDERSLICE DISCOVERS A GREATER PURPOSE DURING TRAVELS
Joni Vanderslice believes that when we travel, we bring a piece of the destinations and cultures we experience back home with us — an idea that has influenced both her life and her work.
When Vanderslice first came to Hilton Head Island, it was to work for Charles and Mary Fraser for what was supposed to be a single summer. She ended up staying.
Eventually, she started J.Banks Design Group and did her first interior design project at Melrose Resort on Daufuskie Island. J. Banks continued to grow over the next 30 years, and today the company has clients all over the world.
